This paper details the thermal study of a battery power system within a sealed enclosure via software modeling and simulation. The model has been developed as a tool to study the thermal effects of the battery system within the watertight enclosure in order to implement sufficient thermal management solutions to ensure the reliable and safe operation of the entire battery power system. The proposed method is based on thermal simulation using Computation Fluid Dynamics (CFD) program. The results determined from the simulations are compared with results based on an experiment. The error is deemed to be minor and acceptable.
